A shiny reflective metallic text effect logo

It's a tutorial that teaches you the tricks to use a very powerful gradient text effect maker to produce a shiny metallic text that reflects the horizon line colors. The created logo also has a beautiful beveled border.

To create that reflective metallic effect, open this free text logo design application and fill the parameters like below:
- Text: Metallic (choose your own);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 3;
- Text gradient: Vertical;
- Text colors: 3;
- Text color 1: 60A0FF;
- Text color 2: FFFFFF;
- Text color 3: 400000;
- Text 3D level: High;
- Text 3D style: Top-right;
- Text light spread: Low;
- Text light style: Top-right;
- Text light color: F0F0F0;
- Draw text border: checked;
- Border thickness: 1;
- Border gradient: Vertical;
- Border colors: 3;
- Border color 1: 606060;
- Border color 2: D0D0D0;
- Border color 3: 404040;
- Border 3D level: High;
- Border 3D style: Top-right;
- Border light spread: None;
- Border light style: Center;
- Border light color: FFFFFF;
- Draw shadow: checked;
- Shadow position: Bottom-right;
- Shadow distance: High;
- Shadow dispersion: Normal;
- Shadow color: 000000;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Get as a transparent PNG file: unchecked;
- Font name: Zephyrean Gust BRK.

Setting the interface this way, you design this nice shiny metallic effect (click the image to view in full size):

Extra tips:
- you can generate this text logo with an anti-aliased transparent background (check the "Get as a transparent PNG file" box);
- remember that a dark back color can turn the outer shadows hard to see;
- the suggested border configuration is important to design that subtle 3D border, what creates a cool bevel look. It is relevant to produce a more professional appearance;
- the best online metallic logos, banners and headers are free to create at this metallic text effect app.

Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
